Brilliant ride down from Monte Palace Gardens to the Botanical Gardens over the ravine. Done this way round the latter is a downhill exploration of the beautiful gardens (and the hillside is steep!). You can pay for a combined ticket for the cable car and gardens at the top. Or with this ticket garden entrance is €6 payable at the bottom as you enter. You have to go through the gardens, there is no exit to the road. From the main entrance bus nos 31 and 31A take you down to near Sāo Lourenço Palace on the front or it's a 40 minute walk. The route is easy to follow, but steep and has spectacular views of the harbour and town. If you're going to use the bus get a Giro card from the yellow Horarios booths on Avenida do Mar and pay for however many journeys you want - cost per ride €1.35 versus €1.95 on the bus. The Giro card costs a one off payment of €0.50. If you buy ten tickets at a time they cost €1.25 each.
It was a really beautiful, unique way to see the sights and we also saw dolphins which was amazing! The guides were really nice and the free cake and wine was a nice bonus too. I'd definitely recommend
Amazing experience, to sail a ver authentic Santa Maria ship, staff was putting all the efforts to spot any dolphins and they managed. That was something you can't miss when visiting Madeira.
Staff explained the museum in the beginning and helped taking pictures. Coffee 0.50€ by machine. Very fun experience.
Super. À côté d’avoir vu des pirates on a pu voir des dauphins, et nager dans des eaux magnifiques. Trop bien
